What is Corporate Yoga?
How to reduce stress and tension at work
Yoga is a time-tested practice that cultivates boundless levels of energetic and physical fitness and corporate employees deserve the opportunity to reduce stress and tension AND become more physically fit – hence why Corporate Yoga was developed.
It’s a busy world we live in today, with increasing demands on employers and employees alike. We work long hours, sitting at a desk and often hunched over staring at a computer, skipping meals, keeping a phone glued to our ear, and rarely leaving our work space for breaks. Before long, these work habits begin to take their toll on our bodies and minds in the form of stress, tension and sickness.
While a mild amount of pressure can help us meet deadlines, too much stress, or constant stress, can interfere with numerous physical and mental abilities. How we respond to stress can have a significant impact on our total health. Yoga in a corporate environment removes stress from the body and mind.
Corporate Yoga benefits include:

Corporate Yoga program options:
I’d love to join your wellness team for corporate yoga classes indoors, outdoors or online on ZOOM!
- Corporate yoga classes can be designed to flow within the unique rhythm of your company's workday and can be at lunch time, before or after work.
- I recommend 60 minute sessions, but if employees only have 30min or 45min, I can design classes to fit within the preferred time frames.
- I will have each employee complete a health assessment that goes over injuries,
health and physical abilities, and meet them at their various fitness levels – there is no previous yoga or fitness experience necessary.
- I offer a variety of types of classes, from calming and relaxing sound healing, meditation, yin / restorative classes to more cardio and core building vinyasa flow sessions. Just let me know what style your employees prefer. I also teach Standup Paddleboard yoga on Mission Bay – which can be a great team/ company culture builder for weekends.
- I have completed over 650hrs of certifications through various Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Schools (RYS), am fully insured and participate in annual trainings and workshops to keep my knowledge and skills fresh.
- I can offer classes as often as you like, but I recommend at least twice per week to see optimal results.
- I also do one-off company events for holidays, celebrations, team building, or other occasions where you'd like to create a relaxing, rejuvenating experience for your employees.
